KIEV, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s capital can bear multimillion losses due to confrontation in downtown Kiev where architectural, cultural and scientific monuments are in the risk zone, director of the Institute of Archaeology of the National Academy of Sciences Peter Tolochko said.
“There are many victims and Kiev falls victim first of all – Kiev, which is being harmed and which is being destroyed by people who don’t live in the city and whose attitude towards it is indifferent. They don’t know Kiev’s history...” Tolochko said.
He named the events, which were currently underway on Grushevsky Street, as inadmissible. “We watched people to burn auto tyres and the National Art Museum to be thrown by cocktail bombs and smoked,” the academician said.
Fortunately, “we succeeded in avoiding considerable damage because the museum employees’ managed to hide most exhibits”, he said.
Kiev’s "intelligentsia" has addressed the authorities and protesters to stop the destruction. “People sent out a kind of mayday call: come to senses - there is no purpose, which justified such barbarity. No power worth it,” the Ukrainian academician said.
